For those who sailed a little too close to the golden glow from those tasteless lift doors in that New York tower block, the moment of truth is fast approaching, as is the answer to anyone who doubted this blog’s previous assertions that some who had sucked up to Combover Crybaby Donald Trump might find themselves the subject of enquiries by law enforcement agencies Stateside - people like Nigel “Thirsty” Farage.
Squeaky felony indictment finger up the bum time
Because Nige is most certainly the subject of enquiries from those Stateside, and the kind coming from Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and his team. Worse for Mr Thirsty, those enquiries have also touched on the small matter of Julian Assange, the Wikileaks man who is still holed up in London’s Ecuadorian embassy.
Seemed a good idea at the time, eh lads?
As the Guardian has reported, “Robert Mueller is seeking more information about Nigel Farage for his investigation into Russian interference in US politics, according to a target of the inquiry who expects to be criminally charged … Jerome Corsi … said prosecutors working for Mueller questioned him about Farage, the key campaigner behind Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, two weeks ago in Washington”.
Guess who's throwing a paddywagon party?
That’s in addition to Farage already being a “person of interest”. And there was more. “Corsi said investigators for the special counsel also pressed him for information on Ted Malloch, a London-based American academic with ties to Farage”. Why is Malloch important? “Last March, Malloch said he had been stopped by Mueller’s investigators when he arrived in the US from the UK”. That’s why.
Remember him, Nige? You will eventually
Also, “Malloch told the Guardian he had been issued a subpoena and interrogated by the FBI at Boston’s Logan airport. He was questioned, he said, about his involvement in the Trump campaign and his relationship with the Republican strategist Roger Stone, and asked if he had ever visited Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks chief, at the Ecuadorian embassy in London”. And what did Mueller’s team ask Corsi?
“Corsi said Mueller’s questioning focused on the theft of emails from Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which were published by WikiLeaks. US intelligence agencies concluded the emails were stolen in a Russian intelligence operation … He said: ‘The issue they went to over and over and over again was: who was my source with Assange?’” Assange again. The bloke who Nige visited, and was caught doing so.
So perhaps it was no surprise when Farage’s predictable response to Theresa May’s claimed Brexit deal “Theresa May’s Brexit agreement is the worst deal in history” (and no, he hasn’t read it either) provoked Tom Jamieson’s response “You might want to see who's named in Michael Cohen's plea bargain with Mueller before calling that”. Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is expected to be indicted imminently.
And with that in mind, Jasna Badzak, who has first hand experience of Mr Thirsty, added “Sorry to disappoint you but no plans for any plea bargain for #UKIP #Farage. Charges followed by Supermax!!! #MuellerTime #BrexitRussia #TrumpRussia (Kassam and Wigmore on the other hand…)”. Ray and Wiggy too? Not to be missed!
